Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at chriso’s. Pretty basic stuff here. Clear gold pour with a foamy, white head. Slightly dank malts in the nose. Sweet flavor, some cereal, weak bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with lightly toasted malts. A pretty typical English bitter.

Bottle. A firm, small, off-white head sits on top of a clear, dark golden body. The aroma is on the malty side, with bread, biscuits and some pleasant hoppy fruityness. Too malty I think. That goes for the flavor too, it’s more malty than I’d like it to be. Some fruity and lightly grassy hops chime in, but I think it’s too malt forward. Medium body, quite dry. Not my kind of bitter, but an honest beer anyway. 111105
